and president obama spent his weekend trying to avoid the sequester. no, of course not. instead of leading, the obama administration decided it's time, would best be spent highlighting how the sequester would impact each of the 50 states. what the white house failed to mention and the media won't cover, yet again, is that president obama and his left wing cohorts, they are the reason that this country is in this mess to begin with. and now, the white house is trying to vilify republicans, they're heartless, they're budget cutters, firing teachers and first responders and kids don't get immunizations and republicans are going to shut down schools and let criminals go. earlier today, the house leadership responded and tried to put some sanity in the numbers into perspective. >> the president's only idea to solve a problem is to take more of the hard working taxpayers. >> and that's let's put the sequester into perspective, it's 85 billion dollars. we have a spending problem in washington, we borrow more than a trillion. we roughly borrow 85 billion dollars every 28 days. so what we're lookin

justifications for the obama administration's unprecedented use of targeted drone strikes against al-qaeda suspects in foreign fliagsz, including american citizens who pose an imminent threat. the white house went on the defense following that report. >> i want to be clear, legal justification for killing american citizens without any trial. >> i would point you to the ample judicial precedent for the idea that someone who takes up arms against the united states in a war against the united states is an enemy and, therefore, could be targeted accordingly. >> jon: what the hypocrisy here? >> you might be thinking of david jackson's piece in u.s.a. today, what if this was bush's drone policy? and the ren dig in guantanamo and all the things that happened in the bush administration where main stream were fired up and now they have been quiet. you leave it to folks like jon stewart to say, the obama people said that we would be fully transparent the bush administration. >> not at all. it is shocking to me if this had been george bush 43 or 41 as the liberal press would have had it front p
. obama said this year's changes shouldn't be the last. >> there is no doubt we need additional revenue coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down the deficit. he is not talking raising rates but closing loopholes especially those making money from investment pay a lower tax rate than income salaried or hourly wage earn ers. >> the average person doesn't have access to cayman island reports. they don't have access to interest income where they pay a much lower rate on billions of dollars they have earned. >> mr. obama says the only way to continue investing in education research and development and still reverse the deficit is with a combination of spending cuts and additional revenues. republicans said the government got additional revenue with last year's tax agreement which raised tax rates on families making more than 450,000 a year and limited or phased out deductions for income over 300,000. in a statement john boehner said any tax loopholes we close should be used to lower rates for all taxpayers so we can be more xret ticompetitive and cree jobs. he reminded t

are to discretionary income and that's separated into two categories, domestic and defense and obama's fear mongering, almost exclusively focuses on the domestic portion. now, he's alleging that our economy will cease to function because we're going to be spending only 29 billion dollars less on domestic programs this year. that's out of 3.8 trillion. so do you know what 29 billion dollars is with the federal government? guess what, they spend that every 72 hours, now, i want to be clear, i'm not defending, i'm not justifying sequester, frankly it's a cowardly way out for these politicians, but the figures show, the reality of what's pending and before i bring in my first guest, john sununu, there are three elections away from i just presented. one, they show the true scale of sequestration, not what the president is saying. two, it it proves the president is cherry picking his facts and politicizing the entire situation because he wants to scare you and three, we can't forget, we're in this mess because the president, he's the one that put us here back in 2011. he's the one that wanted sequestration

you up right. >> bret: we are about 27 hours away from president obama's first "state of the union" address of the second term. chief white house correspondent ed henry tells us what we can expect to hear. >> president obama only used the word "jobs" twice in the inaugural address, his team is now building tuesday's big speech as a continuation of a major push on the economy. >> you will hear in the president's "state of the union" an outline from him for his plan to create jobs and grow the middle class. the president has always viewed the two speeches, inaugural address and "state of the union" two acts of the same play. >> the play since inaugural featured scenes with the president focusing instead on gun control, immigration reform and other issues. leading to headlines this weekend about the president pivoting back to jobs. a phrase republicans say they have heard nearly a dozen times since mr. obama first tried to pivot back from healthcare. >> the president spent most of the first term avoiding the issues americans cared about most. >> what i am suggesting is he not do the s

which would provoked this. and fox has confirmed that president obama has spoke to f.b.i. director to congratulate him on the coordination of the f.b.i. and local law enforcement. there is still after this press conference so many questions unanswered. one of the biggest why did the gunman take that little boy hostage in the first place. he spoke with his sister a short time ago. good evening, what did the gunman, kidnapper's sister say? >> she had very little to say. i spoke with her about an hour after the end of the situation. she seemed to accept it as it is. she had very little to say. the family and none of us knew that he was leading to this, only the neighbors probably knew what was really going on. >> greta: now, you knew him as a young child in the area. i think you are both about the same age, you knew this man? >> i did, yes, and as i've known him as a child a small prd of time in adult never showed these kind of tendencies but his family knew that he had anti-government views before he was estranged from them. >> greta: i must admit i'm curious about your criminal just
, president obama admitted the cuts were a really bad idea. what the president failed to mention is that the sequester was his idea and his administration during the dead limit negotiate. >> and president obama failed to mention the sequester, he made another pitch for the higher minimum wage and cutting the budget in general and can't allow huge cuts in social security and medicare. >> and that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction and others nothing more. >> and even with the looming crisis, congress is taking the next week off. >> kelly: thank you. >> congress can figure out a responsible way to deal with the looming financial crisis. angela mcglowan, and penny lee, joining me for this beautiful afternoon, ladies. >> thank you. >> we're not hearing any talk of compromise for a 11th hour deal being worked out. what are the consequences here and who will face the brunt of this, penny? >> well, unfortunately right now we're at a time in washington they don't face the crisis until it's absolutely the 11th hour. we see this tim
tonight he is challenging obama's policy. we are the people, the president workings for us. >> and he's offering real reasonable. dr. benjamin on hanity tonight. >> this is the fox report tonight. our u.s. military about to face deep budget cuts. what can help stop the pain? a former military officer who spent years working with pentagon tax dollars has a bold answer for sequestitration and a message from washington. what was the light in the sky broof san francisco. reports from witnesses and a video backing up the claims. a mysterous flying object and this time in u.s. air space and coming just hours after a metor exploding thousands of miles away and rattling buildings and people below . fox reports from inside russia on the cosmic clean up following a direct hit from outer space . a new warning over the defense budget showdown this time from the army's top brass. in my opinion sequestation is not in the best interest of the national security. it places a burden on the soldiers and civilians and plus, questions tonight about whether washington is playing politics with th
as congressional republicans. remember, president obama last year during the debate with mitt romney said the sequester won't happen, so this is going to happen on his watch. at the same time obama's approval ratings arat a three-year high. there is risk for the g.o.p. here, the republicans are very flus traited with the white house, they are staying that the white house is not serious about spending cuts so they have to take whatever cuts they can get, even these spending reduction -gs, which they don't like, but they say something has to be done. jon: along those lines rich lowry of the national review wrote this regarding republicans. he said republicans want to blame president barack obama for the idea of the sequester even though they signed on to it as a bipartisan deal to get past the tkebl ceiling showdown of 2011. do they think that no one will remember that they voted for the deal? he does have a point. >> he does. it's a tough uphill climb i think for republicans. president obama has the bully pulpit of course and right now republicans are issuing press releases. they are not i
this is obama's sequester. the republicans supported this. i supported it. we need to come together and make the right cuts and frankly ash carter at the department of defense said even if we did some kind of flexibility move at the 11th hour it is too little too late in terms of what they have in motion at the department of defense. we need to come together -- >> chris: but you senator mccaskill -- >> i want to sum jump it. i cannot support this. >> chris: let me ask senator mccaskill this question. you are not going to get an agreement on the cuts in the next five days. the see he questions terrorist attack is going to go through. why not give agency heads more flexibility to decide i'm going to cut more of this and less of that? >> i think right now the way this is set up, there are going to be cuts a lot of places and there will be some flexibility. i think we are going to look at a number of things this week. but it doesn't take away the real need we have and i know tom coburn agrees with me on this. we have a much bigger problem down the line in terms of reducing our debt than just wha

on the table than turning the government over to barack obama to find the cuts. i don't like that proposal at all. >> do you plan to work with the republicanless and put a plan on the table. >> there you? q. >> i want to get my republican colleagues to cum up with ape plan. if we start laying people off and get fur lowed one day out of five you don't get paid. we should have memberings of congress pay docked. if why ask conscience did contractors and people in the government to suffer because we can't find 1.2 trillion and instead of firing the soldierings. we ought to fire the pol. we need to reduce our pay by one-fifth. >> i think that is it a great idea and just like the americans applaud here in the studio today. >> the president was the one who proposed it this is it the president speaking about it two years ago >> already some in congress are trying to undo automatic spending cuts. my message to them is simple, no. i will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic sphending cuts domestic and defense spending. >> this employees his idea and yet he is blaming the republicans. does h

a continuation of the obama campaign and it's time to wake up to the reality that government has expanded exponentially and it's time to look at rome restraint. >> neil: you're rate, kate, very much. i want to bring you up to date with the math. this is not red or blue, it's green, just money. if you add up all the fear mongering and the things we're supposedly lose, the guards at the airport, the tsa officials, the beef inspectors, you would be talking about -- including those to defense, which would dwarf the 85 billion, along the magnitude of the fear mongering, it would be the n the vicinity of $850 billion. ten times what we're talking about. i only raise that because no one else is and that's going on. i'm the nerd. i just follow the numbers and this doesn't add up. meanwhile, with the cuts brewing, the speaker is suing. >> we should not have to move a third bill before the senate get offs their ass and begins to do something. >> one senator is trying to do that. republican tomko burn is outlining 1.4 billion bucks in savings. it's a start. like the $179,000 position for the agricul
